Amazing things Ela's made
- My classmate and I arranged our university to become partner university to the one in Salzburg, where we desperately wanted to go for an exchange year to learn all about Animation and it worked.

- As a duo we created the Nokia Champaign «Hullukolme» for which we flew over to Finnland and casted three crazy finns to shoot a series of viral movies in Finnland & Switzerland (www.youtube.com/user/hullukolme).

- Creating a commercial which displayed in movie theaters was exciting for me (vimeo.com/22603118). Watching a commercial I created for Mobilezone on TV, too.

- Our team at Eyekon AG just won the Best of Swiss Web Award in Creation for the digital experience of the Grand Tour of Switzerland (Check out the application movie I produced for the jury: bosw.eyekon.ch/grandtour/).

- I've raised a well behaved dog (not as easy as I thought ;)

Kathi Walter Art Direction at Freelance Art Direction Kathi Walter

There are two types of creative people; the ones who do something ?cool? the
media industry and the others that can?t help but be creative - those who don?t
stop thinking, who see every problem as a chance to surprise people with a
solution. Those who are never satisfied with their own good ideas and continue
searching for the best. Ela is in the second camp.

Someone who is always on the ball, optimising, helping and improving - whether
it?s the transport of her dog, the preparation of tofu-bolognese or a new
function for Cook Eat. Just ALWAYS.
She is one of the best, quickest and most reliable creatives that I know, in
love with the details and still manages to retain the big picture. However I am
not recommending her for this reason but for the passion, devotion and
commitment she puts into her work.

Ela regularly helps and supports me in creating designs and marketing material for online and offline channels. What I especially love about Ela's work is that she is able to consistently perform on a very high level, no matter if I need a flyer design, an animated video, or unique designs for online channels. She also works extremely quick and reliable, and the best thing is that she doesn't just blindly transforms inputs into a design, but actually thinks about your inputs, what you (and your business) needs and therefore provides not just amazing designs, but also helpful advice to further improve your design language and marketing activities!

Meret Nehe recommended Cookeat where Ela is Co-Founder

Cookeat is a promising concept that provides an innovative alternative for the everyday lunch break. It allows professionals to enjoy healthy and diverse food for lunch while connecting to people outside their regular business contacts. I've participated in cookeat lunches myself and have taken not only recipes for delicious food but also longlasting business contacts with me. The intimate environment in another person's kitchen makes one feel at home while allowing for surprises in the quality of food and hospitality of the host.
The Cookeat team is very passionate and driven by their vision to provide good and healthy food to their customers. With their motivation and combined skill set, I'm confident that they'll make Cookeat a successful food concept.

My first Cookeat-Lunch convinced me of the concept: a healthy, tasty meal, together with nice and interesting people - a great alternative to busy, expensive restaurants!

Caley Romero-Faude Founder at SAGANÀ recommended Cookeat where Ela is Co-Founder

It was a real pleasure to come over for lunch, eat very delicious, authentic, healthy home-made meal ( entrée and main course) via CookEat! I think good food is best shared with the company of 4-6 wonderful strangers as eager to discover a new way of social eating. Often many eat lunch or dinner alone. Eating healthy food in a resto can be costly too in the end! If there's a CookEat platform in Zurich, Geneva, Bern etc where people who loves to cook good food, serve their specialities and open their homes -- that's fabulous! I can just imagine the different cuisines we can discover over lunch or dinner also the new friendships over a shared meal thanks to CookEat!

Anna Schmuki recommended Cookeat where Ela is Co-Founder

Gutes Essen auf dem Tisch- doch wie erfahren es die im Büro? Die vertrauenswürdige und sympatische Homepage von Cookeat, die moralische Unterstützung und Vernetzung durch das engagierte Team habe ich als Köchin sehr geschätzt! Und nicht zuletzt das Radio DRS das plötzlich in meiner Küche stand! Top Service mit Schwung und Professionalität!
